Sooners avoid Bedlam sweep to keep Big 12 title hopes alive

(Continued)

OKLAHOMA CITY —

Evans was on the mound when OSU’s Cage Green stole home in the eighth inning for the game-winning run in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to the Cowboys.

“A little deja vu from yesterday,” Evans said when asked what went through his mind when he saw the ball get away from OU catcher Anthony Hermelyn Sunday. “I saw him. He got the ball right to me and he slid right into me.”

Better production behind the plate: Hermelyn went 2 for 4 Sunday. It was huge for OU because he went 1 for 12 in the West Virginia series last weekend and was 0 for 7 in the Bedlam series prior to Sunday.

Banged up ump: Home plate umpire Randy Wetzel made both the controversial calls at home that went OU’s way. The payoff: he was nearly knocked out in the seventh inning when Matt Oberste launched a ball just outside the left-field foul pole, but caught Wetzel with has bat as he left the batter’s box.

The game stopped for several minutes while trainers helped the umpire.

Up next: OU plays its final game at L. Dale Mitchell Park at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday against Dallas Baptist.
